The selection was just okay but the food that was available was fantastic, the fruit was perfectly ripe and the coffee was great. The quality and choices in the dishes were perfect. They have brunch every day until 2 PM. The price is a bit spendy at 30 bucks a pop but there are always ways to... read more

However, we just arrived in Vegas and decided to have our first dinner here. very disappointing. food quality has taken a nose dive. lackluster taste. quality similar to that of a 10 dollar buffet. very disappointing to say the least especially...

We had tickets for "The Script" who were playing at the Mandalay Bay, so decided to go early and eat there. Glad we went early. It was a Saturday night, and by the time we left, there was quite a line. $34.99 each which includes unlimited wine, beer or champagne. This is excellent value as wine by the glass in... More

The food is great, many choices for every taste. The servers are not very friendly, so I prefer to serve myself. But you can't beat the price and variety of the food.

This buffet is one that you should definitely skip. Food is not good and quality is quite poor. We had dinner there. Everything seemed old and sitting there for a while. I think the attraction is the inclusion of wine and champagne with meal, but is not worth the cost al all.

We like sipping an extended, late morning coffee. This place is awesome for a 10:30 AM arrival. You pay the breakfast price and get lunch too. This is an above average buffet. It is NOT The Wicket Spoon (Cosmo) or Bacchanal Buffet (at Caesars Palace), but nor is it prices as such. If you are staying at Mandalay Bay, I... More

I was recently at this buffet earlier this week. My husband and I were here for breakfast and found the service was ok, the food was very good and the selection was one of the best we saw this trip. I found the eggs and hollandaise sauce cold which ruined the effect, but overall it was quite tasty. I would... More

We went to the buffet for lunch on a Wednesday. The food selection was limited and the hot food options were warm at best. The best option was the dessert bar's cookies.

My hubby and I have gone to the Bayside Buffet many times over the years as we find it to be the best in terms of value for your money and the taste. Some buffets are terrible but we can honestly say this has to be the best one in Vegas even compared to the Wynn.

I've been to just about every buffet on the strip (this is definitely not something to brag about) and while the food at this buffet was perfectly fine I was rather surprised by how limited the selection was. Nothing really inventive or exciting- just basic food that you would get on a standard buffet at any chain buffet restaurant. With... More
